2015-05-18 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-06-27)
Recall Summary: New Flyer Industries Ltd. (New Flyer) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 C35LFR, 2008-2013 C40LF, 2008-2013 C40LFR, 2009 L40LFR, 2009 C35LF, 2013-2014 XN35, 2011-2014 XN40, and 2012-2014 XN60 buses, equipped with certain Cummins Westport ISL G engines. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Hazard: If the engine oil comes into contact with hot surfaces, it can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.
Remedy: Cummins will notify owners on behalf of New Flyer, and Cummins service centers will administer the repairs which include securing the ends of the 90-degree elbow and reprogramming the electronic control module (ECM) with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at (204) 224-6706. New Flyer's number for this recall is R15-007.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: New Flyer Industries Ltd. (New Flyer) is recalling certain model year 2013 XD35, XDE35, XE40, and 2013-2014 XD40, XD60, XDE40, XDE60, XN35, XN40, and XN60 transit buses. During installation, the Brake Pedal Mounting Plate may have been clamped between the Brake Pedal Assembly and the Brake Valve Actuator (BVA) resulting in a misalignment and binding of the internal piston in the BVA.
Hazard: The binding of the piston may result in increased resistance while applying the brakes and the potential for brake drag once the brake pedal is released. These conditions increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy: New Flyer will notify owners and will replace the brake pedal mounting plate and the Brake Valve Actuator (BVA), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at 1-204-934-4876. New Flyer's number for this recall is R14-019.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
